Tuesday, August 17 1756

At home all day. A very wet day continually; there was a storm of thunder and lightning in the night from about 12 o’clock to 3 in the morning. We dined on a piece of pork, carrots and apple pudding. This day balanced accounts with Francis Smith and paid him in cash £4… After we had balanced, I gave him in cash £8, which he is to pay in London for me. This night our maid sat up with Joseph Mepham. Sent Mr Leander Cox a letter wherein I offered him my wool at 21/- per tod delivered in London, or, if he thought it too dear when he saw it, to give but 20/- per tod and pay the carriage–I mean mine and my mother’s wool.
